“The motive for that, after our detectives interviewed this young man, was he made the threat because he did not want to attend school today,” Protsman said.

On May 19, a court decided to release the student to his mother and put him under electronic home monitoring until further notice, according to court records.

The student is also restricted from using the internet and social media.

He is also ordered to attend, participate and follow all recommendations of counseling.

The student’s next day in court is set for June 13.
